Chadwick Boseman Visited Terminally Ill Kids While Battling Colon Cancer
Chadwick boseman was doing more than just putting on a brave face during his 4 year battle with cancer – the guy was actively visiting and inspiring children as he privately suffered from the same disease.
St. Jude Children’s Hospital paid tribute to the fallen star, reminding people that he came to their facility in 2018 to meet patients … bringing gifts and words of inspiration for the children.
They write: “We are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of our friend Chadwick Boseman. Two years ago Chadwick visited the St. Jude campus and brought with him not only toys for our patients, but also joy, courage and inspiration. ” The organization sang his praises, adding … “He was an incredible role model to our patients and children around the world. Our hearts are with his family and friends at this time.”
At the time, St. Jude’s had posted more photos of the face to face … and it’s clear the guy went around and met a bunch of kids who couldn’t have looked more happy to meet a marvel superhero. The fact that he’s at the heart of his own battle with cancer makes it all the more heartbreaking, especially since he hasn’t said a word about his battle.
Chadwick discussed meet some of these kids and what an impact it had on him – he even broke down during the Sirius XM interview when talking about two terminally ill children who died ahead of the upcoming Marvel movie. Dude was a real saint.
As we reported … Chadwick succumbed to his illness and died on Friday, shocking the entertainment world – scratch that, shocking the whole world. He was only 43 years old.
Our sincere thanks to
